he just looks so robotic out there. his movements look deliberate and his body language is of a guy playing with very little confidence right now. he isn't able to see when its time to take the ball hard to the hoop and when its time to do the one dribble pull-up and when its time to hit the standing jumper. being able to read the defence is something that all players need to work on to some degree.
he needs to relax.
the play of humphries doesn't justify using Bargs more than 10 mins a game right now. this obviously isnt going to do anything remarkable for his confidence but i think its hindering his development.
i think what he needs right now to get him off is to come out and hit a couple of shots early. part of it is that his teammates have little confidence in getting him the ball too. they see that he's tentative and that he's giving up shots for more difficult ones.
